Running in Australia

Australia has an incredible, adventurous and sometimes pretty out there running scene (see popularity of Cupid Undie Runs). The largest marathon is at the Sydney Running Festival with over 37,000 finishers last year. However, if you're looking for something truly massive, then join the Sun-Herald City2Surf with 80,000 other competitors. Expect to meet amazing people from all over the world and probably get overtaken by a giant foam beer bottle - fancy dress is encouraged.

What you need to know about running

There are heaps of different running events to get involved with, if you want a good mix of fun then Parkruns, colour runs, 5ks, and 10ks, might be ideal for you. However, if you're looking to extend your distance then our selection of half marathons, marathons, and ultras might be what you need to set your sights on. Running is not only one of the world's most accessible sports, it's also super sociable too, so grab your friends set some goals. If you're just starting out, 5k and 10k events are great fun and definitely worth doing if you're training for a bigger challenge further down the line. These events often aim to keep the mood light, the Bridge to Brisbane Fun Run is a famous example.

For those who want to stretch their legs a little more, the half marathon and marathon are the next level up to consider. The Gold Coast Marathon is one of the oldest running in Australia, passing it's 40th edition in 2018 and attracted a record 28,000 participants. However if you're looking for something a little smaller, on the other side of Brisbane the Sunshine Coast Marathon hosts a much smaller pool of around 6,500 participants.

If you love to push yourself further than most others will, then an ultramarathon might be for you. These raced are defined as anything over the 26.2 marathon distance. This could have you trekking for 100k or more as in the Ultra-Trail Australia. There are 'shorter' versions too, usually starting around the 50k mark. The Australian Running Festival in Canberra hosts one of these. To take on these events you've got to be prepared for anything, and the key is to be well rested and properly fuelled. Take things slowly, it's an (ultra)marathon, not a sprint after all. Get to know your fellow competitors along the way and soak up some breathtaking views.

Training for a running event

Training isn't easy, and can be particularly tough if you're going it alone. Generally, people who stick to a training plan struggle less with motivation and are able to fit their goals around their lives more easily. It doesn't matter if you're a 5k novice or a marathon pro, have a read over some of our pre-race training plans to help you reach your goals: 5k Training Plan; 10k Training Plan; Half Marathon Training Plan; Marathon Training Plan; Ultramarathon Training Plan.
